Market Insights from the Market Strategy Team

Desktop / Platform

  • IDC forecasts worldwide PC shipments to fall by 10.1% In 2013; volumes expected to stabilize above 300 million units per year, but with no significant recovery. Enterprise sales are down 5% and consumer sales are down 15%. [1] Worldwide tablet shipments are expected to reach 221.3 million units in 2013, 53.5% above 2012 levels. Shipment growth is forecast to slow to 22.2% year over year in 2014, and down to single digits by 2017. [2] Phablets appear to cannibalize the smaller tablet form factors and usage scenarios. [3]
  • Spider.io demonstrates how easy it is to use malware with less than 100 lines of code to impersonate real website visitors and visit webpages of the botnet's choosing. This generates traffic from residential IP addresses with real user cookies and with real mouse traces and click events. [4] Some publishers are supposedly optimizing their sites for bot-generated traffic. [5] While the top 500 retailers have increased paid search spend 25% [6], adtech fraud costs advertisers an estimated $7m per month and make Facebook more attractive. [7]
  • Internet browser reviews often use older versions [8] of all browsers and reflect areas for improvement in startup time and navigation time. WebRTC implementation comparisons show comparison's between Firefox and Chrome with ratings neck-and-neck without significant differentiation in quality. [9] Rendering engine comparisons are also using older version and rank Gecko with competitors [10]. The list used as the top website creation software packages are expensive. [11]
